(Ecofin Agency) - Mauritania will provide Mali with 40-50 MW to help the country reduce its power deficit. This was revealed by the Mauritanian Prime Minister Yahya ould Hademine, at the end of a meeting with the Malian delegation.

“President Mohamed ould Abdel Aziz gave strict instructions for all measures to be taken to meet Mali’s demand,” the official said.

According to the Mauritanian power utility (SOMELEC), Mauritania which has an installed capacity of about 354 MW, for a 50% electrification rate, currently has a production surplus. The energy will be piped through the high voltage network of the Organization for Senegal River’s development (OMVS), of which both countries are members.

Moreover, a high-voltage line linking Nouakchott-Dakar will be installed to allow the transmission of a greater quantity of electricity.

Let’s note that Mali has an electrification rate of 35% for an installed capacity of 533 MW that is around 65% operational.
